Values in Action

Values-in-Action (VIA) is a learning experience that enhances students’ development as socially responsible citizens through ownership of their contribution to the community. Our VIA approach enables Northstars to progressively contribute to the school, society and overseas community.

Northland Overseas VIA (NOVIA) is our signature school programme where all Secondary 3 students will have the opportunity to do VIA in the following countries:

·       Phnom Penh in Cambodia

·       Ho Chi Minh in Vietnam

·       Batam in Indonesia

In these countries, our students teach English and Mathematics to beneficiaries in primary schools and orphanages, and help to improve their environment through painting and infrastructural enhancements.

From 2019, Leaders’ NOVIA will be introduced whereby outstanding student leaders will be able to visit Hainan in China or Semarang in Indonesia to further develop their leadership skills through the integration of NOVIA in their leadership camp.
